Originally each borough had it's own school system so there were duplicate numbers.When the systems were merged, schools were allowed to keep their original numbers, causing duplication within one system.When new schools were built, it now became a jumble. It is like a deck of cards. When you open a new deck, all the numbers are in order. As you deal and mix the cards,order has been lost. This is what we have today in NYC. But it is not a disaster because each student knows his particular number (maybe). Also, names were added to the school. JHS44---David Farragut.
The building of the school would probably be controlled by the size of the land it is to be built on. Also the grades.
